Place: New York, USA
Venue: Arthur Ashe Stadium

Surface: DecoTurf
Prize Money: US $19,600,000 + $2.6 million bonus prize

Tournament Facts: The fourth and final Grand Slam event in an annual season is the US Open. Held from late August to early September at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center at Flushing Meadows-Corona Park in Queens, New York, the US Open is the most prestigious tennis tournament in North America.

The US Open first began as an exclusive high society event. First held as a men's only event in 1881, the tournament was known as the US National Singles Championships. In 1887, the first women's event was held. In contrast to the previous three Grand Slams in the annual season, the US Open differs markedly in that the final set is played to a tiebreak. The other three Grand Slams, the final set is played until a player wins by two games; for example, the 2008 Wimbledon final was won by Nadal 9-7 in the final fifth set.

In 2006, the US Open was the first Grand Slam tournament to apply call reviews and instant replays using Hawk-Eye technology. Available only in Arthur Ashe Stadium (Court 1) and Louis Armstrong Stadium (Court 2), Hawk-Eye allows players when doubting a call to challenge. In 2007, the US Open Prize Purse at $19,600,000 was (at the time) the biggest in the history of tennis.

US Open 2009 Review: After winning the 2009 US Open, Roger Federer fell short in 2010, losing after two tie-breakers to the Argentine Juan Martina Del Potro.  The women’s singles category was won by the German Kim Clijsters.  The men’s doubles was taken by the duo of Lukas Dlouchy, of the Czech Republic, and Leander Paes, of India.  The Unitd States claimed victory in women’s doubles, with the high-powered team of the Williams sisters, as well as in the category of mixed doubles, with Carly Gullickson and Travis Parrott.

Wimbledon Tennis Betting

Grand Slam Tennis Betting: Wimbledon Championship 2010

Place: London, England
Venue: All England Club
Date: June 21 – July 4, 2010
Draw Size: 128
Surface: Grass
Prize Money: 12,500,000 pounds sterling

Tournament Facts: As the oldest major tennis championships, Wimbledon is widely considered the most prestigious. Held in the summer (from late June to July), Wimbledon is the third Grand Slam event in an annual season. The first Gentlemen's singles event held at Wimbledon dates back to 1877. In 1884, the All England Club added Ladies Singles and Gentlemen's Doubles.

Wimbledon is perhaps best known for its history and traditions. One of the longest standing traditions at Wimbledon is the stipulation all players wear almost everything white during matches.
Wimbledon Championships 2009 Review: Roger Federer's epic and historic victory in the men's singles final brought the 123rd Championships to a fitting climax in the evening sunshine on

Centre Court. After four and a quarter hours he finally overcame the American Andy Roddick in a 30-game fifth set, the longest in Wimbledon history, to claim a record 15th Grand Slam title.

How appropriate it was that Pete Sampras, with whom Federer had shared the record following his success last month at the French Open, was a surprise visitor, joining other greats such as Rod Laver and Bjorn Borg in the Royal Box to see history made.

The hopes of Venus, chasing her sixth Wimbledon victory, were dashed in the women's final when she was beaten in straight sets by her younger sister, Serena. It was a merited win, Serena's third Wimbledon, and the 21st time these two had faced each other in top-level professional play. It proved, beyond doubt, that since the retirement of Justine Henin a year ago and the struggle that Maria Sharapova has experienced in coming back from a shoulder operation, the Williams sisters rule women's tennis.

Past Champions: The Wimbledon Championships have been largely dominated by a handful of players on both the men's circuit and women's front over the last decade. Roger Federer and Venus Williams have each picked up the coveted crown five times.

Roland Garros Tennis Betting

Grand Slam Tennis Betting: French Open 2010

Place: Paris, France
Venue: Roland Garros
Date: May 23-June 6
Draw Size: 128
Surface: Red Clay
Prize Money: TBD

Tournament Facts: The French Open (also known as Roland Garros) is the second Grand Slam event in an annual tennis season. Named after the famous French aviator Roland Garros, the tournament is held from mid-May to early June. It is the worlds premier clay court tennis tournament and the most physically demanding of the four Grand Slams.

The French Open began as a national tournament in 1891 as The French Championships. The first womens tournament was held in 1897. In 1925, after being strictly a domestic event, the French Championships opened to foreign players. But not until 1928 did the French Championships see a new era heralded in and begin to grow in to the global tennis tournament we know today. In 1968, the French Open was the first Grand Slam event to go to an open format allowing both professional and amateur players to compete.

French Open 2009 Review: The tennis gods brewed up a storm around Roland Garros on Sunday afternoon as they prepared to welcome a new member into their midst. Roger Federer repelled the rain, thunder, and a certain Robin Soderling to take his rightful place among the immortals of the game.

The Swiss produced a near-flawless display, delighting his fans with the full range of shots that have made him arguably the greatest player of his era, to sweep aside Robin Soderling 6-1 7-6(1) 6-4 and seal his first-ever French Open title. The triumph enabled Federer to become only the sixth man in history to win all four Grand Slam tournaments, and also saw him equal Pete Sampras' record of 14 majors.

The enormity of his achievement was evident on match point when Federer fell to the red earth of Roland Garros weeping tears of joy. Minutes later, Andre Agassi was on hand to present the Coupe des Mousquetaires and share in the Swiss legend's delight as he held the trophy to the air, 10 years after the American had sealed his own career Slam with a far more hard-fought win here over Andrei Medvedev.

Svetlana Kuznetsova's five-year wait for a second Grand Slam title is over. The Russian won the 2009 French Open title, emerging victorious 6-4 6-2 after her opponent - No1 seed Dinara Safina - was paralysed with nerves throughout the 75-minute contest.

The match that pitted the best two clay-courters from 2009 deserved to be a closely fought affair. Kuznetsova had won 15 of her 17 matches on red brick this season, while Safina's record was even more impressive: 20 victories and only one defeat. That loss came in the final in Stuttgart against none other than Kuznetsova, but the world No1 took only six days to get her revenge, defeating her friend from St Petersburg in straight sets in the final of the more prestigious Rome tournament. The two had previously lost in the final here (Kuznetsova to Justine Henin in her 2006 pomp, Safina to Ivanovic last year) and were eager to go one better.

Past Champions: Many tennis greats have emerged from the hallowed dirt courts to claim the prized trophy. Most recently, the event has been utterly dominated by a player many consider the clay-court King of our time, Rafael Nadal.

Tournament Facts: The first of four gruelling Grand Slams of the season is the Australian Open. Dating back to 1905, the event was first known as the Australian Championships. The advent of the Open Era in 1968 saw the tournament renamed. The two main courts are Rod Laver and Vodafone Arena. Both feature retractable roofs that can be shut in the event of rain or extreme heat.
Held in the first month of the season, the Australian Open plays host to a 128-draw on the men and women's singles circuit, a 64-draw on the doubles and a 32-draw mixed doubles. Also in competition are juniors, as well as the seniors (or masters).

Australian Open 2009 Review: Second seeded Serena Williams regained the women's singles title and recorded her fourth Australian Open title and tenth Grand Slam title overall after defeating third seed Dinara Safina (6-0, 6-3). Serena, partnering her sister Venus, also won the women's doubles tournament.

Rafael Nadal defeated Roger Federer (7-5, 3-6, 7-6 (3), 3-6, 6-2) to win the men's singles title. This is Nadal's first hard court grand slam, having previously only won on clay at Roland Garros (four times) and grass at Wimbledon (once). He also became the first Spaniard to ever win the Australian Open. This tournament featured 20 five-set men's singles matches, the most since 1988.

In men's doubles, another sibling pair took the title as Bob and Mike Bryan defeated Mahesh Bhupathi and Mark Knowles.
